There was quite a bit of banter with some of the twitterati claiming that the Fenerbahce v Braga tie trumped the Liverpool v Manchester United fixture.
Obviously Fenerbahce v Braga is the biggest tie of the round followed by Sparta Prague v Lazio. Oh and there just happens to be the small matter of Tottenham v Borrussia Dortmund as well.

Fenerbahce vice-president Nihat Özbağı seemed confident with his sides chances – perhaps a little too confident.
Nihat Özbağı, Fenerbahçe vice-president: "It's a good draw for us. Braga were the most suitable team that we could get." #UELdraw

There was also a lot of interest in the Braga stadium which looks as if it has a mountain protruding from one of the stands.
The Braga stadium is carved into the face of the adjacent Monte Castro quarry and is undoubtedly one of the most unique footballing arenas in the world.
